What Can You Do?

Website Launches

This website went on-line today, providing members of the Orthodox Church in America their first comprehensive information source concerning the allegations of financial scandal at the OCA's headquarters in Syosset, New York. Operated by Orthodox Christians For Accountability, a newly-established Ohio-not-for-profit corporation, OCA News is solely intended as a service to the OCA, formed for the purpose of creating and encouraging dialogue within the OCA, since there are no other current venues for a full and open discussion of these allegations on a church-wide level.

In addition to current news concerning the scandal, this website offers the readers original documents relating to the scandal, a nine-year chronology of the scandal, reflections on the scandal by priests and layman, as well as a blog, where members of the OCA are encouraged to share their thoughts. (As with all serious matters, disagreements are anticipated and differing views will be respected.) A "What You Can Do" section encourages members of the OCA to begin discussing the allegations in an open and frank manner on the parish, deanery, diocesan and national levels so that a healing resolution may be discerned and achieved.

The webmaster, Mark Stokoe, is a former member of the OCA's Metropolitan Council.
